Join the sisterhood; Muslim home schoolers

Muslim Home Schoolers women's group
It's hard to believe this blog is over 7 years old...almost as old as my youngest child and I probably treat it like my youngest baby truth be told!

I try my best to nurture it; feeding it with articles and resources to keep it alive...perhaps at times allowing it to get a little too hungry; but I'm sure that just helps develop the appetite.

This has been my project, and over the years since its birth, I've seen the numbers of Muslim home schoolers rise as more and more of us jump on this rocky, wobbly road of home education Alhamdulillah.

And that's awesome for all of us, because as our community grows we gain more and more support; learning from one another's experiences and benefiting from the wisdom of those who have treaded upon this path before us.

For quite some time I've been wanting to take this project to the next level; to be more than just a blog to share information, to somehow actually help make a difference inshaAllah.

Building the Muslim home school of your dreams inshaAllah!

Building the Muslim home school of your dreams inshaAllah
Alhamdulillah home education is growing, and within our Muslim community, it's gaining popularity fast!
With so many of us turning to educate our family our selves, we jump in head-first; trying to find our way through a misty fog as we figure out through trial and error how to do this inshaAllah.

Even when we do find our feet, it is easy to be left scratching our heads as the demands of being a home school mother and all it involves takes its toll.

For those of you in need of a sprinkle of inspiration; whether you are new to home schooling or have been deep in the trenches for some time, I have an exciting announcement to share....

Stories of the Prophets time line story pack

Stories of the Prophets time time line story pack
Whether you are a parent or a teacher, help your family or students study the Stories of the Prophets with this awesome time line resource pack.

Each Prophet from Adam to Muhammad has their own page where each story can be recorded in the childrens own words, and put together to form a giant 31 page time line!

I've ordered the Prophets as mentioned in the chapters of Ibn Kathir's book "Stories of the Prophets". You can use this book or any other authentic work to help complete this task.
Although Ibn Kathir doesn't mention the Story of Muhammad in this particular book, I have included a page for his story to show the end of the Prophets.

Printable Arabic alphabet flashcard / posters, with harakat.

Printable arabic alphabet flashcards with harakat
The internet brings to us a wealth of information and resources to our fingertips like never before Alhamdulillah!
No longer do we have to scour the high-street searching for what we want to find. With a few clicks of a button, we can discover what the world has to offer us.

Learning Arabic is something hugely important for Muslim families. I remember when my children were younger, all I had to teach the Arabic alphabet was a large poster hung up on the wall and one or two poor quality board books.....which I treasured!

In just a short few years, as more and more of us are deepening our desire to nurture our childrens curiosity and engage them in their learning adventures, more and more of us are turning to the internet to find awesome resources we can print at home, saving us £££s.

Yes, this is turning into a sales pitch (I've never been a good salesperson!)....however this is something I have created which I would have loved to have had when my children were pre-schoolers, as I believe it would have helped tremendously in teaching the Arabic alphabet and early development of Arabic reading skills, and Allah knows best.

So, what is it exactly?...

Getting to grips with Atoms and Elements - a free lapbook folder

Free to download and print, interactive lapbook folder all about Atoms and Elements

If you are looking for a simple introduction to what science teaches about Atoms and Elements, you might like this folder printable, which can be made into a lapbook or put into your interactive notebooks.

Before I continue, I just want to interject with a sort of disclaimer here .... much of science is based on theory, not always proven facts.
And so when teaching our children different branches of scientific knowledge for their academic school studies, it's important to explain this to them, especially when scientific thought contradicts or opposes the Qur'an and Sunnah.
